Annual promotion slashes prices on Modern Warfare 3, Portal 2, Spec Ops: The Line, several package deals.
The Steam Summer Sale is on, and with it come significant markdowns on PC games large and small, new and old. The sale offers deals on different sets of individual games daily until July 22, publisher packages until July 23, and "flash sale" discounts, which are good for 12 hours or less.
Some highlights from the discounts available today include Portal 2 for $5 (was $20) and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for $30 (was $60). Gamers interested in $50 package deals can find Spec Ops: The Line and The Darkness II among others in the 2K Collection. Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Just Cause 2, as well as several Hitman and Tomb Raider titles, are on sale in the Square Enix Collection, and many other packages are available.
The promotion's current flash sales include Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $7.50 (was $30), ending at 4 p.m. PST, and Rayman Origins for $15 (was $30), ending at 10 p.m. PST. Gaming documentary Indie Game: The Movie is also available for $5 (was $10) for the duration of the Summer Sale.
Most of these are terrific games. Shogun 2, Crusader Kings 2 and HOMM6 for the strategy buffs, Legend of Grimrock and the Indie bundle for everybody else.
Bless you Steam.
lol just as I got the DRM version of Witcher 2. Still, plenty of awesome games to buy.
My wallet hates you Steam.
Everything more than about a year old has already been on sale and I've already bought the ones I was interested in. It's mostly just the past year's games I care about. I mean - Just Cause 2 has been on sale several time. I would think pretty much everyone who wants it already has it by now.
here come all the pc fanboy saying how consoles suck and how pc is the best
i got some of the flash deals and some indie games
It's a double shame, because this looks like excellent value on the hoof. But, none of the title interest me (that I haven't already played), and I almost exclusively console it.
